I consider myself an Abstract Expressionism Photographist, and I have photographed in this style for 20 or more years. Believe it or not, up until just recently (mid-2018), I had not created an Abstract Expressionism Photography SeriesIn a way, that seems completely ludicrous to me!Typically, all of my Abstract Expressionism photographic artworks have been designed for other photography series, so I guess I never thought there was a need for a photo series called, 'Abstract Expressionism Photography'.However, with my work titled, 'Descent into Tartarus' (2018), I had no collections that were specifically appropriate for that artwork. And after searching my many series, I could not find one titled, Abstract Expressionism Photography! Therefore, that is how this series came into existence. It was a process of discovery: I discovered that I needed an 'Abstract Expressionism Photography' series.Anyone who follows my work will know that Jackson Pollock is my main artistic influence. Thus, my Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks are in the fashion of All-Over Painting, and my works are full of chaos, action, dynamic colours, and design.Tags:#AbstractExpressionism, #NawfalJohnsonNur, #GreenBrokenGlass, #geometricshapes, #sharp, #lines, #edge, #cracked, #fractured, #cool, #imagekind, #JacksonPollock, #Psychoactive, #Psychedelic,
Nawfal Johnson Nur, Penang, Malaysia Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson Nur — My Photographist Beginnings: When I pick up my camera...when I compose the subjects in the frame...and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind: To take a better photograph than the last time.
I have been using a camera as a hobbyist since I was 12 years old, and then as a freelance professional (starting in 1998).
Photography is a Madness for Me — My Work: I have been a long-time Freelance Stage & Dance Photographer; nevertheless, I focus much of my energy designing fine art Abstract, and, Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also design SMOKE-ART PHOTOGRAPHY, and that is the art style I focused on in my 2011 book, titled, ETHEREAL DREAMS and HOPE.
I create and design fine art, abstract photographs of my own abstract expressionism paintings. I also design many of my abstract artworks from photographs I capture out in the urban environment as I walk around, investigating and photographing things I see in detail.
As an artist, I love working with alcohol-based permanent ink, acrylic paints, art pens, and watercolour pencils. However, my finished art pieces are usually photographs.
Art is a madness for me because I must be working on new artwork all the time — I must be doing artwork even IF I feel like hell, and IF I'm thinking my life is being pulled into a Black Hole. I must still be doing photography or working on one or more pen artworks, whether I am in a state of happiness, or in a state of despair. Art and Photography are an integral part of my life.
My Artistic Influences: My main artistic influences are Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. As for photographic influences, I have always drawn inspiration from Carl Fischer, and Andreas Feininger. Depending on my mood, I draw a lot of inspiration from listening to music as I work. Presently, my favourite Classical music is from Vivaldi and Bach. If I'm not listening to Classical, I get energy from Very Heavy Metal groups, for example, Fallujah, Jinger, and Sylosis.
I was born in 1965, in Lincoln, Nebraska, and in 1994, I moved to Penang Island, Malaysia.
